Delivering data rates up to 10 Gbps and up to 100 W of power, USB Type-C is the new connector for all next generation products. Perfectly tailored for emerging product designs, it offers rich interface capabilities with 'Alternate mode' support. Together with these improved capabilities comes easier design and usability with fully reversible plug orientation and cable direction, making USB Type-C far more convenient for consumers and helping deliver a true Plug and Play experience.

Product Description
High Speed Signal Switches Provides signal multiplex or de-multiplex function in order to redirect the transmitted signals to same connection port or different connection ports.
USB Redrivers - Signal Conditioners Active signal regenerator which utilizes equalizer and amplifier to reshape the bypassed signal in order to remove jitters and reopen the differential signal eyes for longer channel transmission and reduce the bit error rate.
USB PD-PHY and CC-Logic Controllers Provide USB data link and also power from host to device or vice versus from device to host.

Which way is up?

In the fast-moving markets of wearables, tablets, and smartphones, system designers are under constant pressure to deliver the right functionality, at the right time – within ever tighter space, power and cost restraints. And sometimes a simple new development comes along that lets designers breathe easier. With benefits in abundance, the USB Type-C connector is poised to dramatically change the way we connect our portable and smart devices. No more frustration from incorrectly guessing which way to plug the connector in. The fully reversible plug orientation and cable direction makes Type-C a far more convenient interface solution for consumers.
